take time out to read the latest Pro-Israeli/Zionist article 'Road-map
to Hell' by Melanie Philips which as usual condemns all Palestinians
as 'mass murderers' and assigns blame for the current conflict only
to Arabs/Muslims. It is such a long and awful rant and so many points
could be complained about that I could go on forever…….
has been described as 'excellent' by Fair-reporting.com and they have
encouraged people to write in and support it. The last thing an Islamophobe
and rabid Zionist like Philips needs is ammunition to continue her campaign
against us. Please email in and complain about this biased diatribe.
point out some of the following inaccuracies and misinformation in her
inane rant: Harping
on as all Zionists do that 'Arabs don't want a separate Palestinian
state: they want the end of Israel' is an accusation that all Muslims
are genocidal. It ignores the fact that the Palestinians have recognized
Israel's right to exist and the Arab world has collectively offered
Israel recognition, security and normal relations in exchange for a
full withdrawal from Arab lands held since 1967 and a fair solution
for Palestinian refugees, in the 2002 peace plan put forward by Saudi
Crown Prince Abdullah. It was the Zionist state that rejected this offer.
praises Israel for her goodwill gestures which included releasing 180
Palestinian prisoners and opening up Gaza and the West Bank which she
claims had only been closed 'to keep in mass murderers.
fails to mention some 8,000 Palestinian prisoners remain behind
bars, over a thousand of them held in administrative detention,
a form of internment without trial in which suspects can be held
- Her implication that the West Bank and Gaza contain
only mass murderers is highly offensive, it echoes typical Zionist
mentality which dehumanizes all Palestinians and justifies their
condemns the Palestinians for responding to these hollow goodwill gestures
by killing an 'Israeli gardener' who was of course a Jewish settler-squatter
residing illegally in the West Bank.
is no mention in her article of the deaths perpetrated by the Zionist
army, instead she invokes sympathy for Israel which 'extends a tentative
hand to people who persistently murder its citizens. As a result, still
more Israelis get murdered.' In essence she wants people to believe
that hundreds of Israelis have been deliberately targeted, while more
than three times as many dead Palestinians are not even worthy of mention.
Indeed Philips believes like most Zionists that these dead Palestinians
all somehow just got in the way of what they claim is humane and disciplined
the Road Map as 'a well-known neighbourhood called Appeasement Avenue'
and asserts it will fail because it 'assumes that the conflict is
a territorial boundary dispute between Israel and the Palestinians.
It is not. It is rather a continuation of the 55-year-old Arab war of
extermination against Israel.'
more the accusation of attempted genocide is leveled at Muslims,
Philips insists 'they didn't want a separate Palestinian state.
They wanted the end of the Jewish one instead. ' She claims the
Arabs were offered a state in part of Palestine in 1948, she fails
to mention they were offered 47% of the 100% land which was originally
theirs. A Jewish minority was offered the greater part.
claims the Arabs 'could have had it after the 1967 war, when Israel
offered the territories back in exchange for peace' this is a blatant
then claims 'And they could have had it - including half of Jerusalem
- when Israel offered it in 2000 at Tabah.' This is perhaps one
the most powerful myths circulated by the Zionists, in actual fact
all that was offered was a kind of super-autonomy within a "Greater
Israel", rather than independence, and the devolution of some municipal
functions in the parts of Jerusalem inhabited by Palestinians, under
continued overall Israeli control.
asserts the 'Palestinians regard the whole of Israel as occupied territory
to be liberated.
- She fails to mention Zionist ideology claims the
entire fertile crescent as 'Greater Israel'. According to their
version of the Bible the Palestinians are entitled to none of the
land, which was originally theirs.
she is most critical of the 'right of return' that the Palestinians
will not relinquish. She blatantly propagates the falsehood that 'Those
whose families fled in 1948 form only a tiny fraction of the four million
Arabs in the disputed territories. Many of these originated in other
Arab countries altogether.'
four million she mentions are the direct descendents of the 750,000
originally ethnically cleansed during the creation of the Zionist
state. They all have a historic claim to Palestine. Just as all
Muslims have a religious claim to our Holy Land.
again and again the 'real ultimate goal (of the Arabs)- the resettlement
of Israel as an Arab state' this demonstrates very well the fantastical
paranoid mind-set of the Zionist who despite having the upper hand will
always paint themselves as the victims of persecution and attempted
to Philips 'Few in Britain now grasp the true Arab agenda towards
Israel. General ignorance of Middle Eastern history has allowed Palestinian
propaganda to invert both past and present realities, resulting in the
progressive delegitimisation of Israel.'
maybe it has not occurred to her that perhaps the public are now
more informed and not so gullible to Israeli propaganda. They cannot
ignore the scenes of violence they see on television, the cruelty
of Israeli occupation speaks for itself.
- Secondly Palestinian propaganda cannot delegitmise
Israel, it is and will always be a state conceived in illegitimacy
is the eyes of the Muslims. We do not recognize their 'more ancient
claim.' Until the oppression of the Palestinians ends and the Zionists
recognize our claim to Al-Quds, Israel will remain an illegitimate
entity, and we will continue to support the struggle of out brothers
and sisters against Zionist oppression.
more points in this harangue could be argued against, it really is
a typical Zionist argument and illustrates the fact that it is the
Zionists who are totally against any kind of peace plan or solution
to the current situation. They wish to keep up the oppression and
mistakenly believe they can vanquish us.
